Course Map

The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery!  The route is on grass and paved roads and features an amazing and scenic course!  This is not the optimal course for a PR, but it is a great option if you're looking for the most fun you've had at a 5k!  Runners and Walkers are welcomed to participate!  

 

Packet Pickup

Packet Pickup has been updated to Race Day Only and will open an hour before the event starts.

Want to avoid the lines entirely? You can choose to have your swag items shipped to your home prior to the race for only $10 per person when done with registration. Shipping to your home address is available until 7/4/21.

 

More info and FAQ's

Awards:  We are doing finisher medals for all participants so there are no age group medals, however your times will be posted online so you can see how you did in your age group!

SOCIAL DISTANCING UPDATE:   With reopening and vaccinations happening fast, this is a dynamic situation.  We will follow the local mandates at the time and location of the race, but here are some things we have been doing so far this year to ensure safety for participants, volunteers, and event staff

  • Extended Packet Pickup Hours, group pickup options, and shipping directly to your home available.
  • Open Start Line (race will not start as a group, your chip time starts when you start the race)
  • Wave Starts (start times extended from 8-10am)
  • Open Area - start line and race staging will be spread out to maximize social distancing
  • Results - posted online only, all participants receive finisher medals (no age group ceremony)
  • Post Race Party - wine tickets are good any time throughout the weekend to reduce group size at the Winery
  • Free Transfer to Virtual Race.  If conditions change, or you change your mind and cannot make it onsite to the race, we will ship your packet and swag to your address
  • Social Distancing/Mask Wearing - participants will be required to follow the local health mandates in place at the time and location of the event but will not be required to wear a mask while running/walking.  Our pre-race email will have reminders of current guidelines and our announcer will encourage these guidelines at the event as well.

FAQ's

Is the race only for 21+? No, minors are welcome to participate and receive a discounted registration that includes a shirt, medal and bib (these participants will not receive a wine glass or a glass of wine).
Are strollers allowed? You are welcome to use a stroller for this event but it is not recommended due to uneven ground on the course and children in strollers can participate for free and do not need to register.
Is walking allowed? Yes
Is the race dog friendly? Yes, but please make sure you dog is on a leash. Also, dogs will not be allowed in the winery.
I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you cannot find the answer to your question on this page please use the "questions" button below to submit a question.

Can I Participate Virtually?

Absolutely!  We have been getting many inquiries about virtual participation and have integrated a virtual option into our regular registration.

Please feel free to register through the regular registration link above and you can either: 

1) Pick up packet during packet pickup or on the morning of the race, but run on your own (hint:  wine ticket is still good if you use this strategy)

2) Contact us at any time to switch to the Virtual Wine Run 5k and we'll ship your packet (no charge for shipping!)

Also, if you intend on running, but later change your mind and would like to do either of these options, that's ok too!  If you are definitely going to have us ship your packet and run virtually though, we do recommend signing up HERE
